CLAS helps with £1.1m Big Lottery win for asset transfer in Newtown

CLAS Cymru has helped support a consortium of locally based volunteers, community enterprises and organisations in Newtown, Powys, to secure a £1.1 million in funding from the Big Lottery’s Community Asset Transfer program.

The Going Green for a Living consortium came together in response to Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council’s call to look at new and more sustainable ways to manage the open spaces of Newtown i.e. how could the community generate a better living from our green and blue assets?
